Hi Larry – I’m glad you are enjoying winter shuffleboard in TX. SHuffleON is the Ontario Shuffleboard Association, which looks after shuffleboard in Ontario (ON), Canada. To find out more about USA shuffleboard, I suggest visiting the National Shuffleboard Association links page – http://www.national-shuffleboard-association.us/links.html. You would also be welcome to come up to visit us in Canada this summer – see https://theshufflersnews.wordpress.com/
My name is Jeff Mitchell. I live in Barrie and have a summer property in Muskoka, where we have an outdoor 40′ shuffleboard court. It is a cement base, but has detroiated over the years. Approx. 15 years ago we obtained a roll up rubber/vinyl surface, but unfortunately it too has detoriated and needs replacing.
I believe the new format of the Click poly tiles would work best in our setting.
I was just speaking to Carl Rogerson, and he graciously suggested that I should be connecting with Bill Boyes. Which is the purpose of this message. My number is 705-734-5648 / email – email@example.com
Since we only use the court recreationally, I am somewhat challenged to purchase a new one for $1,250 plus. Therefore if you could post on your site my request / offer to purchae a slightly used Poly Click surface that would be greatly appreciated. At this stage I truly won’t need til next spring; so if you are aware of a playing surface that is available either new or used for under $1,000 that would be greatly appreciated.
Do you know of any outdoor shuffleboard courts in Ontario (and if at all possible closer to Hamilton) that are available to play on?
Hello – The only ones I know of are in Midland Ont. I will post your question to everyone.
Can you recommend a company to install a floor shuffleboard court in the GTA?
Drew – we recommend DOM SPORTS for shuffleboard courts. They have roll-out courts which are very good. I have shuffled on courts built into linoleum flooring but I cannot find any reference to a manufacturer or installer. There are snap-together courts available from our sponsor,
DOM Sports – website is everythingshuffleboard.com. Please keep us informed of your success finding the kind of courts you need.

We are planning to resurface our outdoor concrete shuffleboard courts in Port Rowan, Ontario. Could you recommend what type of paint should be used for this purpose? It was recommended to use H & C Concrete Stain by Sherwin Williams but we could not find it on their website. Any recommendations for painting and what paint to use would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
Hello Frida. Thanks for your question about resurfacing outdoor concrete shuffleboard courts. I will query others in the Ontario shuffleboard Association and see if we got any recommendations. Please tell me how many courts you are resurfacing. Thanks, Bill B.
Hi Bill, we have two courts. Thanks.
Hi Freda – did you see the DOM SPORTS info on resurfacing? – I looked up the DOM Sports (our sponsor) website which has lots of useful information, although the part about paint may be out of date as provincials laws have changed. http://www.domsports.com/pdfs/Building%20a%20Shuffleboard%20Court.PDF
We will be using Nella Wax Sealer but the bottle doesn’t show how to clean up your utensils afterwards. Dom Sports and other sites do not have any of this information either. Is anyone familiar with using this and what clean up is required for tray, roller etc. Thanks.
Freda – Nella-Seal is a wax/water mixture. Clean up with soap or detergent and water.
Some hints – Shake the Nella-Seal bottle well before using. It will separate over time so after about two years will need to be recombined using a paint mixer machine. Don’t apply too thick or on too hot a day or it will dry with cracks in the surface. I have never used a paint tray – just pour a bit out of the bottle and push around with the long-handle paint roller (not the big fuzzy type of roller), or a pad made from an old towel or use my favorite -piece of rug wrapped around a push broom. Yo can drag the broom-pad lightly over the court a a final “tipping off” (like applying a varnish finish). We used to be able to coat three courts from one bottle of Nella-Seal, and would do our busy (used three to four hours a week) courts three or four times a year. We would wash our courts beforehand with a little soap and water and rinse well, then dry before putting on Nella-Seal. Wash in the morning, squeegee off (or use old towels), let dry in the sun , then apply Nella-Seal. In a dusty environment, damp-mop before applying the Nella_Seal.
Thanks. Your comments are very helpful as this is our first time doing this.
You are most welcome. Good Luck! Anyone else’s comments welcome.
Hello Bill and Or Carl, with Shuffleboard almost at a stand still, was thinking of purchasing a mat for my Driveway, it was suggested to contact you to inquire if if the OSC had any for sale, or if you may know of a club that may have one. Looked at Dom Sports the one I was interested in 475.00, but unfortunately may be to thin, my Shuffleboard Friends are very competitive, so would like something a little heavier, unfortunately more expensive. Your advise and suggestions would greatly be appreciated, if you know of a club who would be willing to sell a used mat we would be very interested. Thank you
Our neighborhood park in Montreal has an area for shuffleboard (croquet and horseshoe toss) which has been abandoned for more than 20 years. I took on the project of restoring it, so that people could come out and play – the lenght of cues is great for social distancing 😉 It is finally ready, and people are extremely enthusiastic. However, I am afraid the makeshift cues and pucks wont last…. I am writing to you in the hope that some members might have extra cues and pucks to give… They would be very welcomed and cherished !
Hello…we just purchased a vintage shuffleboard table. I was wondering if there was a company or person who could restore this. We are in the Peterborough Ontario area.
Thank you for your time
Joanne, It looks like you did not get a reply from anyone so I will tell you that this website is about floor/deck shuffleboard as opposed to table shuffleboard. Lots of fun if you would like to give it a try sometime. God luck in your search for someone to restore your table.
I am looking into having shuffleboard started up again at the long-term care home I work at. We have red lines painted on our floor that are very hard to see now. I was wondering if you know of any contacts by Milverton, ON area that I can get details from about the process?
Thank you for any information!
We used the large black markers in Ingersoll works very well.
Our friends have the forms to do this.
I can help you if you wish.
I live in Clinton.
The black markers seem to give a beautiful clean line for Ingersoll courts but my experiences difficulty seeing the lines defining the Kitchen and back of the “7”. It probably has a lot to do with the background, which in Ingersoll is a gray concrete color. With A lighter background The lines could stand out perfectly from the other end of the court.
Thanks for your question Jade – The process is to use masking tape and then spray, roll or brush on the line-colour. Lines should be very visible and a bright white works well. If you want to paint the inside area do not use alternating black and red (an old design which makes the disks hard to see.). but use a light-to-medium green or blue. You might want to think about using roll-out courts if staff are available for setup and clean-up. You can see some at the Centre Wellington Shuffleboard Club (60 David St. W., Elora). Good luck and let us know if you need any ,more info.
I am looking at building a concrete outdoor shuffleboard court for our cottage association this spring. The site is near Port Carling in Muskoka.
I am looking for a contractor to do the concrete pour. The excavation and site prep is complete.
Would you have a few contractors that have experience building these courts?
My number is 416-809-3907
Hi Bob. Thanks for your question. From past experience I can tell you that we do not have any contractors we can specifically recommend. Best is someone local and hopefully some of the experience such as building municipal sidewalks. A 6 ft by 60 ft concrete slab without expansion joints is a special project for sure. Extra strength required. Just remember the enemies of shuffleboard courts are Frost and tree roots.
Please let me know so I can visit next summer! Thanks, Bill Boyes
Hi there! I am looking to purchase roll-out shuffleboard outdoor courts for our crew here in Orillia. Does anyone have any knowledge on these or recommendations for what to purchase? Or are most courts typically concrete with painted lines?
Thanks in advance!
It’s great that you’re setting up for shuffleboard in Orillia. Concrete outdoor courts with painted lines are certainly the most common. There is a club in Midland that plays on concrete courts. I think your best bet for information is to contact Dom sports. There’s information on our website about how to contact them.
My wife and my self are interested in joining a shuffleboard club we live in St Thomas ont I heard there is one in London ont would like any information
John I hope you saw the
Bill I saw the rest of your message we live in St Thomas
Hello, I couldn’t seem to find anywhere to see where shuffleboard is being played near us. We will be living for the summer near Peterborough, are there any clubs near us, thank you
Thanks for your request for information on the Ontario shuffleboard website. There is an entry on the website for club information. All I can suggest is you try something not too far away. A relative term I know but try Tweed Picton Brockville or Napanee if they are not too far away for you.
I have a 15 ft shuffle board that needs refinishing is there any one not to far from Chatham area that would be recommended
Hi brent. I guess by now you probably figured out that this website is about floor shuffleboard versus the table shuffleboard you are interested in. Why don’t you give us a try? It’s lots of fun!
